Wind farm Nij Hiddum-Houw

Windpark Nij Hiddum-Houw is located at the head of the ‘afsluitdijk’ and is described as one of the best wind locations in the Netherlands. The existing wind farm of 10 wind turbines will be replaced by 9 modern wind turbines with a total capacity of approximately 42 MW. The development of the wind farm will take place in cooperation between Windpark Gooyum-Houw B.V. and Vattenfall. The intention is that the immediate surroundings will be able to participate in approximately 25% of the project. The initiators will shape the possibilities for participation together with the Environmental Advisory Board ‘Omgevingsraad’ (OAR). This council represents and appoints the various interests from the surrounding area.

Ventolines is involved in the engineering, contracting of the park roads, crane stands and electrical works, contracting of the wind turbines and foundations and interface management of the wind farm.

Construction is scheduled to start in 2020.
